Three Teens Arrested in Armed Robbery of Toms River Man

Group suspected of robbing man of $1,000

Two 17-year-olds and an 18-year-old woman have been charged with robbing a Toms River man of $1,000.

The investigation began July 5, when a homeowner in the Lions Lane area of Brick Township called police at about 11:40 p.m. to report a male had walked up to the home, claiming he had been robbed.

The alleged victim, later identified as a 20-year-old Toms River man, fled from the home but police caught up with him a short time later, according to Brick Police Capt. John Rein.

The man told police he was in a vehicle with two other males and a female driver, when one of the male passengers pointed a gun at him and demanded money. He said he handed over $1,000, after which he was ordered out of the vehicle, a Nissan Sentra, and told to lie on the ground.

Police investigated the incident overnight and into Friday, eventually focusing on a home where the suspect vehicle was said to be located, Rein said. Police performed a motor vehicle stop on the Sentra late Friday morning, Rein said, leading to the arrest of one of the male suspects – a 17-year-old – and the female driver, identified as Staci Fayard, 18, of Toms River.

The third suspect, another 17-year-old from Toms River, was arrested later in the afternoon.

The suspected weapon, a BB gun, has been recovered by police, said Rein.

Both male juveniles were charged with robbery, possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. They were both remanded to the Ocean County Juvenile Detention Facility in Toms River.

Fayard was charged with robbery, and bail was set at $150,000. She was being lodged in the Ocean County Jail, records showed Sunday.

go easy on them , , they didn't mean it .... :) I agree with " so much to say" ..... statisics show there is MUCH less crime when more law abiding citizens are allowed to carry a gun..its actually common sense.. but as we see, that is alcking much in our society today

These 3 idiots need to rob someone with there bb gun who will use a 12 guage on them. If they survive lets see how eager they are to rob again.

Guessing that the 18-year-old will most likely spend her summer in the slammer, what parent would come up with the 10% for bail !! Would you ?? I agree with Scott, a bb gun is no match with a real firearm..
